  • 2 ounces Rum (see notes)
  • 1 ounces fresh lime juice
  • ½ ounces cane sugar syrup


  • Chill a cocktail glass with very cold ice water while preparing your drink.
  • Add ice and all ingredients to your shaker and shake for 30 seconds.
  • Discard ice water and strain cocktail into the chilled glass. Cheers!


  • I used a rum mix of a French white rum, a Jamaican dark rum and a Nicaraguan dry Rum. You can just use your favorite rum or try mixing a few that you love. The bartenders I spoke to use a rum mix. 
  • Make sure you shake longer than you think you should. This cocktail is only good if you have a really cold cocktail!
